“Yesterday, Baher opened her exhibition under the title “Rising from the Ashes” at Dar al-Assad for Culture and Arts, making her last wish to showcase her artworks in the heart of Damascus a dream come true.
“Time and location of Ursula’s funeral is given below. Instead of buying flowers to the funeral I want to ask you to make a donation of your choice for a good cause, eg a foundation to support the families of the martyrs of the Syrian Arab Army, the foundation to help people fight cancer run by Asma al-Assad or just any other effort to help the poor and needy.”
Ursula, Manuela Hochsteadt, our honorable guest, the angel who shared us our sorrows, and brought love with her to Syria have passed away after her dreams to visit Syria came true, and after she gave us one of the most precious gifts, her colorful soul painted in her drawings ❤️
I am lost for words dear Ursula.
Your soul is now in our sky, we can smell the jasmine in the air, please tell our beloved martyrs we said Hi, we miss them, and we thank them, and we will always miss you, you are now one of them, you are one of our beloved martyrs.
Dear Ursula, please tell the real God up there everything, that people are killing and being in his name! Tell him about all the faces you painted, paint them for him again, you will be able to ask them for more details if you want!
May your soul rest in peace ❤️🙏😢🇸🇾
#Yesterday I attended the opinion of her exhibition and I wrote:
I was attending the opening of Exhibition for Peace in Syria by the German artist “#Ursula“, Manuela Hochsteadt, at the Opera House in Damascus.
I was their, actually I was waiting for it since the moment I heard she was coming to Syria…
Finding about someone far away from you but being with you in his soul and heart was beyond magical…
Ursula was with us for years before we even knew about her, and today, looking at the amount of love and beauty in her artwork was a blessing, I was able to identify many of the faces and the scenes Ursula beautifully recreated with her super amazing talent, tears filled my eyes and… no, I didn’t cry… almost…
I didn’t take any photos, just lived the moment, I will never forget this day.
But I found those photos on Facebook and found myself in one of them (the first one), it was taken from behind my back, but at that moment I wouldn’t have noticed anything.
Thank you very much Ursula for your passion and love,it means a lot to all of us, may the lord give you strength and magically cure you, you are an angel.”
